Heating bill price shock could be felt in Minnesota, too

Sen. Tina Smith has called for an investigation into possible natural gas price-gouging after a cold wave hit Texas.

Minnesotans could face price shocks on their heating bills, the result of a nationwide gas-costs surge spurred by the great Southern freeze.

The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (PUC) will scrutinize spiking gas prices at a quickly arranged meeting scheduled for Tuesday.
